Auxiliary panel for the dedicated windlass circuit breaker. Includes an 80 Amp breaker with traditional switch like action. Black with white lettering.
Replaces the original 80 amp push / pull breaker identified by a round, red anodized aluminum knob marked 80.
This panel is an easy replacement at a lower price than the old push / pull breaker only.
Unfortunately the old breakers were always problematic because their action required an undue amount of force. Their modes of failure were:
1) Pulling "On" required enough force that the threads attaching the knob to the breaker would fail or...
2) The force required to switch on or off would break the panel itself.
As a result, their ongoing use fell to essentially zero. Availability is limited and expensive. As a superior alternative, we offer this replacement panel that Catalina used on newer boats. They are much more convenient to use as they are easy to switch on and off.
Caution! Only use warm soapy water, no degreasers or harsh chemical cleaners, to clean the plastic panels.
